There is still a strong likelihood that Oakville will be merged with Burlington, Milton, and Halton Hills to form the Megacity of Halton despite claims by our local MPPs. Through a unilateral decision by the Province, our town as we know it can be wiped out.
In August, Premier Ford openly confirmed that some municipalities will soon be amalgamated and the number of local politicians will be reduced. In addition, the special advisors report on the Regional Government Review has been delayed, possibly until after the October federal election.
What could happen – Consider BILL 108 – After only one month of public consultations and at an unprecedented speed, the Ford government passed Bill 108 that affects 13 important Acts. It will increase property taxes and result in the loss of our voice and autonomy over the future of Oakville to the benefit of developers.
It is too late to stop Bill 108, but you can still join over 3,000 residents who have already sent letters to save Oakville.
Please SEND a LETTER to the Ford Government (it takes less than a minute) to stop higher taxes, service reductions, and the loss of our local voice.
